Matthew 6:25-34 Mounce Reverse-Interlinear New Testament (MOUNCE)

25  Therefore dia houtos I say legō to you hymeis, ‘ Do not be anxious merimnaō about · ho your hymeis life psychē, what tis you will eat esthiō or ē what tis you will drink pinō, or mēde about ho your hymeis body sōma, what tis you will put endyō on . Is eimi not ouchi · ho life psychē more polys than · ho food trophē and kai the ho body sōma more than · ho clothing endyma? 26 Look emblepō at eis the ho birds peteinon of the ho air ouranos, they neither ou sow speirō nor oude reap therizō nor oude gather synagō into eis barns apothēkē, and kai yet · ho your hymeis heavenly ouranios Father patēr · ho feeds trephō them autos. Are you hymeis not ou more mallon valuable diapherō than they autos? 27 And de which tis of ek you hymeis by being anxious merimnaō can dynamai add prostithēmi a single heis cubit pēchus to epi · ho his autos height hēlikia? 28 And kai why tis are you anxious merimnaō about peri clothing endyma? Consider katamanthanō the ho lilies krinon of the ho field agros, how pōs they grow auxanō; they do not ou toil kopiaō nor oude do they spin nēthō; 29 but de I say legō to you hymeis that hoti not oude even Solomon Solomōn in en all pas · ho his autos royal splendor doxa was clothed periballō like hōs one heis of these houtos. 30 Now de if ei God theos so houtōs clothes amphiennymi the ho grass chortos of the ho field agros, which is here eimi today sēmeron but kai tomorrow aurion is thrown ballō into eis the oven klibanos, · ho will he not ou much polys more mallon clothe you hymeis, O you of little faith oligopistos? 31 So then oun, do not be anxious merimnaō, saying legō, ‘ What tis shall we eat esthiō?’ or ē, ‘ What tis shall we drink pinō?’ or ē, ‘ With what tis shall we clothe periballō ourselves ?’— 32 for gar the ho Gentiles ethnos pursue epizēteō all pas these houtos things for gar your hymeis heavenly ouranios Father patēr knows oida · ho · ho that hoti you need chrēzō them houtos all hapas. 33 But de seek zēteō first prōton the ho kingdom basileia of ho God theos and kai · ho his autos righteousness dikaiosynē, and kai all pas these houtos things will be given prostithēmi to you hymeis as well . 34 Therefore oun do not be anxious merimnaō about eis · ho tomorrow aurion, · ho for gar tomorrow aurion will be anxious merimnaō about itself heautou. Sufficient arketos for the ho day hēmera is · ho its own autos trouble kakia.

Matthew 6:25-34 Expanded Bible (EXB)

Don’t Worry

25 “So I tell you, don’t worry about the food or drink you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes. 26 ·Look at [Consider; Think of] the birds in the air. They don’t ·plant [sow] or ·harvest [reap] or ·store food in [gather into] barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them. And ·you know that you are [L aren’t you…?] worth much more than the birds. 27 ·You cannot [L Who of you can…?] add ·any time [or one step; L one cubit; C about eighteen inches] to your ·life [or height; C the Greek probably refers to time instead of stature] by worrying about it.

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? ·Look at [Consider; Think] how the lilies in the field grow. They don’t ·work [toil] or ·make clothes for themselves [L spin thread]. 29 But I tell you that even Solomon ·with his riches [L in all his glory] was not dressed as beautifully as one of these flowers. 30 ·God clothes [L If God clothes…?] the ·grass [wildflower] in the field, which is ·alive [here] today but tomorrow is thrown into the ·fire [L furnace; oven]. ·So you can be even more sure that God will [Will he not much more…?] clothe you. ·Don’t have so little faith [or How little faith you have; T You of little faith]! 31 Don’t worry and say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32 The ·people who don’t know God [Gentiles; pagans; unbelievers] ·keep trying to get [eagerly seek; run after] these things, and your Father in heaven knows you need them. 33 ·Seek first [Be concerned above all else with] God’s kingdom and ·what God wants [L his righteousness]. Then all ·your other needs will be met as well [L these things will be given to you]. 34 So don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will ·have its own worries [or worry about/take care of itself]. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
